In the State of Florida, the supportive relationship statute allows the payor of alimony to have their alimony obligation reduced or terminated if their ex-spouse is in a supportive relationship.

The court shall consider and make written findings of fact regarding all relevant facts and additional factors.

Factor k. to be considered is:

β€œThe extent to which the obligee and the other person have provided support to the children or other family members of one another, regardless of any legal duty to do so.”

This factor is aimed at understanding the level of mutual support and care within the family unit.

An example of this may be, if the other person has a child from a previous relationship, and the obligee has been actively involved in the child’s life, providing emotional and financial support, attending school events, and taking care of the child when the other person is at work.

This statute would allow the court to consider the support the obligee has provided to the other person’s family members, even though they are not legally obligated to do so.

This support may influence decisions regarding the supportive relationship and the alimony obligation, as it demonstrates the level of commitment and involvement within the other person’s family.

With summer break quickly approaching, divorced parents may be facing the stress of sending their children off on airline flights by themselves to visit the other parent or their family living in another state.

As a divorce attorney, I see many families navigate the logistics of children flying alone. To ensure child safety, it is important to be informed about the various airlines and their policies on children flying alone.

In this article, you will find a wealth of information that can help you navigate this potentially stressful type of visitation.

Remember that communication is crucial. Discuss the travel plan with your child, the other parent, and the receiving adult. Ensure everyone has clear contact information and understands the pickup/drop-off process.

Be sure to prepare your child for security procedures and potential delays. Role-play potential scenarios so they feel confident.

As a family law attorney, I would recommend double checking your custody and visitation agreement to ensure smooth transitions for your child.

Happy Valentine’s Day and Happy Birthday To Dr. Ann Dolgin who turns 89 years old today!

Today we honor Gary’s sweet and wonderful mother on her special day.

Gary shares a beautiful dedication to his Mom:

“My mother has always been a trailblazer.

When my brother, sister, and I were in elementary school, she obtained her Doctorate in Education and showed us, at an early age, the importance of hard work and dedication. She temporarily relocated with us to the University of Miami and my Dad visited every other weekend, traveling from Tampa.

She lost her mother at age 14 to cancer and my grandfather, who worked seven days a week in a laundromat, sacrificed to make sure that my uncle and my mother were the first in the family to attend college. My mother passed on the importance of education to her children.

My brother, sister and I all reside in Tampa. My brother is an Ear, Nose, and Throat surgeon, and my sister is an Engineer.

My mother was married to my father for 53 years at the time of his death.

At 89, she is still sharp and enjoying her retirement.

She enjoys her eight wonderful grandchildren and is always ready to share her life experiences and advice with them.”

Have you considered a prenuptial agreement?

Some of the reasons that clients consider prenuptial agreements are:

– They want to protect their interest in a family-owned business.
– They want to protect an inheritance that they’ve received.
– Perhaps they are a very high earner, and they want to have a prenuptial agreement stating that they won’t have to pay alimony in the event of a divorce.
– Any other issues that parties may want to have in an agreement now to prevent having a messy, litigated divorce, should things not work out.

If you have questions regarding prenuptial agreements, give us a call and we’ll be happy to answer your questions.

At The Law Offices of Gary S. Dolgin, we can help you with preparing a prenuptial agreement, as well as with any family law issue you may be having.

Gary Dolgin’s father, the late Dr. David Dolgin would have celebrated his 93rd birthday this month.

He is missed and remembered warmly by the Dolgin family and those friends and patients who loved him.

Gary shares his touching sentiment in loving memory of his father:

“It is so hard to believe that 15 years ago this month my dad Dr. David Dolgin passed away unexpectedly while traveling with my mother on a three week trip through Vietnam, Cambodia and Thailand.

When he got sick in Bangkok, he called me and asked me to call his office and reschedule his patients. He was still practicing periodontics one day each week at the age of 77. His patients loved him and did not want him to retire.

My dad was Tampa’s first Board Certified Periodontist. His Board Certification inspired me to become a Board Certified Expert In Marital and Family Law as well.

I miss him everyday. I wish we had more time with each other. I am thankful he had the joy of meeting all of his grandchildren, but I wish he could see them now.

He and my mother would have been married 68 years this past December.

Today we remember the wonderful husband, father, grandfather and brother that he was.”

The Tampa Bay Times requested that Gary Dolgin give his professional legal opinion regarding the 59-page ruling written by the 11th Circuit Court of Appeals regarding Andrew Warren’s case.

The story was on the front page of The Tampa Bay Times E-Newspaper this past Thursday.

In August 2022, Governor Ron DeSantis suspended Hillsborough State Attorney Andrew Warren accusing him of “incompetence” and “neglect of duty.”

Warren’s request to be reinstated had been declined by U.S. District Judge Robert Hinkle.

However, the 59-page opinion, authored by 11th Circuit Judge Jill Pryor critiqued Hinkle’s reasoning and stated that Warren’s suspension violated his First Amendment right to free speech.

In reviewing the opinion, Gary Dolgin is quoted as saying “The appeals court specifically directed the lower court to re-examine whether DeSantis would have suspended Warren based on something he did that was not protected by the First Amendment. That includes Warren’s performance and specifically his policies on bike stops and low-level offenses.”

Gary continues by saying, “My reading of this opinion says that he could potentially only remain suspended if the district court makes a determination that DeSantis would have suspended him solely for these policies. When the case comes back in front of the lower court, the burden of proof will be on DeSantis to show he would have suspended Warren based on those factors.”
